Stand Up Paddle Boarding originated in Africa and was most widely used by warriors in an attempt to stealthily sneak up on their enemies. It migrated over the years to Hawaii, some say as far back as the 16th Century, as a stepchild of surfing.  Present day, it is now the most popular paddle sport among first-time participants. In other words – try it!  Everybody loves it!
